Satisfying a very strong need in all of us

Short version: Henceforth, if you want to discreetly find out if somebody is fannish or not, just ask her if she's "a friend of Kirk." If she answers, "no, I'm a friend of Spock," contact! (This test has probably a low rate of false positives and a high rate of false negatives, at least until we spread it wide enough.)

Long version: at pun's original post.

I am commenting to remind myself to gank this when I post my pictures of my shiny new mirrorverse minimates!

I'm probably going to ask that question to a lot of people.

I had a terrible urge to ref further back, to Dune:

"I was a friend of Jamis. Jamis taught me, that when you kill, you pay for it.

With enough dedication, we could come up with a fannish sign battle language.

If I thought I'd ever actually meet a fan IRL, I would be all over this. Still, it is rather brilliant.

Who knows? (Worst case scenario, as soon as any of us gets rich we can set up a fandom-wide traveling fund and randomly stalk each other)

That's the first thing I'm planning to do as soon as I marry Tim Drake.

Well, okay, now that I know the proper counter-sign.

However, my first tendency would be to answer the question with, "Eh, he's all right. I'm more a friend of Sisko, though."

*g* If that makes the conversation devolve into a choose-your-best-captain discussion, it's pretty likely you are among fans (bonus points if it goes multi-fandom).
